Wm. J. Kolkmeyer Yachts, LLC
SEMPER FI , the finest example of the Sabre Spirit daysailer with classic good looks and spirited performance, built for people who love sailing and the exhilarating feeling that only a traditional sailboat design can offer. The overhangs of her hull convey an old world elegance, and her nominally narrow beam allows her to sail beautifully and responsively. Her deck hardware and fittings are of the highest standards. Keels and rudders, designed by Jim Taylor Yacht Design, are the standards of technology and performance.
Below deck, the Spirit offers a simple yet elegant layout, built with the Maine craftsmanship and quality for which Sabre Yachts is so well known. A functional galley is found to port, and to starboard is an enclosed head. Her salon offers twin port and starboard settees which surround an inlaid drop leaf table. At the forward bulkhead a ring frame surrounds the opening to the forward sleeping accommodation.
There is no mistaking this yacht’s heritage or pedigree. She is a Sabre throughout, a fast and extremely elegant daysailor which will bring back the excitement and exhilaration that we all felt when we first discovered the beautiful pastime of sailing.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
Below deck you will find a simple yet elegant layout built with the Maine craftsmanship and quality for which SABRE Yachts is so well known: Dovetailed drawer boxes, inlaid steps and tables, and laminated trims all speak to the craftsmanship that has been SABRE Yacht's hallmark for over 50 years.
Her chainplate bulkheads are built of solid fiberglass, laminated to the hull skin. Sabre overlay these structures with cherry ply and thru bolt massive stainless steel plates to ensure the durability of the structure. Hulls are built using vacuum bagged PVC foam core for lightweight and maximum strength. Below the cabin sole, carbon fiber is used to strengthen hull ribs and provide maximum stiffness to the hull bottom.
Her navigational/chart table is situated forward and to port at the forward end of the salon. Her salon offers twin port and starboard settees with removable back cushions for sleeping berths. They surround a beautifully inlaid centerline drop leaf table. A traditional teak and holly sole adds warmth to this elegant cabin. At the forward bulkhead a ring frame surrounds the opening to the forward sleeping area. Her V-berth will comfortably accommodate two for overnight trips.
The Spirit offers complete galley facilities. An upgraded three burner propane stove is supplied for preparing larger meals. A deep stainless steel sink is equipped with a Scandvik sprayer faucet. A large icebox will keep your provisions cool and fresh. Storage is abundant with many drawers and lockers provided in this well laid out galley. Her galley counter is made of solid surface material and is surrounded by a laminated fiddle to keep things in their place while sailing. An overhead hatch provides ventilation while a fixed port-light provides ample natural light. Halogen lighting illuminates the working and cooking surfaces.
A well equipped head unit is found to starboard of the companionway for convenience and maintenance is easy thanks to a molded fiberglass pan. Head odors are minimized by the choice of a standard fresh water flush MSD. The head is also equipped with a macerator pump. Again the countertop is made of solid surface materials. A pull out shower head will be a welcome feature on a weekend cruise. There is ample storage in the under deck lockers outboard of the countertop and in the vanity. Natural light streams through a fixed port light and ventilation is provided by a Lewmar #00 deck hatch overhead. A cherry framed mirror finishes off this functional space.

Sabre turned to Jim Taylor to design a daysailor with the style and elegance of sailing yachts of a bygone era, and added to the design mandate blending the performance of a youthful sport boat with "grown-up" ease of handling available with today's modern sailing hardware. To merely use a number to describe such a boat seemed inadequate, and so the name "Spirit" was chosen to better describe the very essence of this yacht. The overhangs of the Spirit's hull convey a traditional elegance, while her nominally narrow beam allows her to sail beautifully and responsively. As is typical of all Sabre yachts, deck hardware and fittings are of the highest standards. Her carbon spar, chosen for added performance and increased stability, is provided by Hall Spars, a 30 year supplier. Below deck, a standard sail drive engine reduces vibration and increases propulsion efficiency. Keels and rudder, designed by Jim Taylor Yacht Design, offer the latest in technology and performance. The Spirit's deck is stylish and uncluttered. Her simple sailing rig consists of an easily managed self-tacking jib and a conventional mainsail in a added LEISURE FURLING BOOM to ensure optimum performance. Her furling jib is attached on to a below-deck furler, so that only the sail is visible above the deck line, and her mainsheet is led from an aft deck traveler to the helm, allowing short or single handed sailing with little effort. Custom toe rails, stem head fitting, mooring chocks and cleats all add to the graceful beauty of her lines. Her cockpit is long and hospitable and offers comfortable seating for her owners and guests.
